Parent Testimonials

"Deb Davis Groves was referred to me by a friend who had used Deb for her daughter's college applications.

The Spring of 2015, I had (3) interviews scheduled to select my daughter's college consultant.

Deb was my first interview and I liked her immediately due to her immense and incredible knowledge of the college education system as well as her attention to detail and truly remarkable organizational skills.... all this I witnessed just in the first 30 minutes of talking to her. I knew my daughter would connect with her too and hired her after we completed our interview.

My daughter, applied as an art major to (9) schools. The applications were not only time consuming and exhausting for her, but an enormous amount of extra work is due for art majors that included a detailed portfolio with specific explanations for each piece.

During this process, Deb was so incredibly successful with my daughter, who can be a perfectionist and can get discouraged and frustrated from having to focus so intently on one specific task. However, Deb quickly realized this aspect of her personality and kept her on point all the while continuing to encourage her and commend her for all of her hard work.

I have recommended Deb to (3) friends and will continue to refer her to anyone looking for a consultant for their high school student. When our son hits high school, Deb will be the first person I call. My daughter has said many, many times to my husband and me .... She could not have completed the college application process without the help of Mrs. G!!"

~Kathy, daughter ~ Class of 2016 ~ Texas A&M

My daughter went to Scripps this weekend for accepted students’ day! She got into three really awesome schools! I am pretty surprised by New York University—and the London component. Anyhow – I KNOW that I couldn’t have navigated this process and kept my daughter on track, etc., so thank you so much!

~Madeleine, daughter ~ Class of 2016 ~ Scripps College 

Thanks for your on-going support for my daughter during this journey. It’s been a great experience for me – and she is such an amazing person. I can’t wait to see how her choices and future unfolds. Thanks for keeping her on-track and being there to push, offering a safe working environment and being her voice of reason.

Deb, Words cannot express how thankful I am for you and Aubrey. Your guidance, patience and tenacity with my daughter the last year while helping her through the college application process has been a blessing and much appreciated!

Thank you,

Virginia ~ daughter ~ Class of 2016 ~ Texas A&M

Deborah Davis Groves did a great job guiding our son through the college acceptance process.  What made this experience so special and helpful was her ability to get to know our son.  Ms G. got him to open up about his goals and dreams in seeking a school.  This was a stressful situation at times for our son and she stayed in touch and was always responsive when any issues came up.  She has a special knack for getting to know her students.  We did not feel like clients, but more like we were part of a team working toward a common goal.  Her effort and empathy went way beyond helping with essays and the push to meet deadlines.  We are truly grateful with the job well done by a true professional.

Mrs. G and Aubrey,

Starting the college search was intimidating at first and I started off with no idea which college to even look at. But Mrs. G helped me find and apply to many great schools that fit me. They walked me through the application process and helped me schedule school visits. Without them, I never would have found the great school I did.

Thank you so much,
